Three teenagers and a 24-year-old man have been arrested and a large amount of cannabis seized as a result of officers stopping a car in Ramsgate.
Officers from the Thanet Local Policing Team were on patrol in the town at around 10.30pm yesterday (January 16) when they spoke to the occupants of a car stopped in Conyngham Close.
Enquiries led to a search of the vehicle and a number of large bags filled with cannabis were recovered along with mobile phones.
A further search was carried out at a property in the town in which another five bags of cannabis – suspected to be a kilo each – were found, together with three backpacks and a holdall containing more of the Class B drug. Cash was also found and seized as part of the investigation.
Four people were arrested on suspicion of possessing drugs with intent to supply.
A 24-year-old man from Margate, a 19-year-old man of no fixed address, a 19-year-old woman from Ramsgate and a 16-year-old girl from Margate were taken into custody while enquiries continue.
The 24-year-old man was also arrested on suspicion of driving offences.
What a result!!!!!!!
Now you have them don’t let them go..
Entrepreneurs starting at a very young age.
I suspect a police stop was not part of their business plan.
Name and shame the scum!!
A very high percentage of crimes lately is drug related!
Hate the people who take them but detest the cretins that sell them!
What a waste of police time. I’m not a fan of cannabis, but it’s health effects are way lower than alcohol. Why do they pursue with a police of making criminals wealthy from it and waste our tax money in a never ending chase over such a harmless drug
Because it is the law! The police don’t make the laws.
The gear I smoked when I was young is not the same as today’s! My son who is 38 smoked it from 16 up until a few years ago! He has no confidence is paranoid and cannot work! Poor kid
